Puma has collaborated with Porsche Design to create the 3D Mtrx sneaker, which features a 3D printed midsole. The joint release marks the first time both brands have used 3D printing technology to design a sneaker’s midsole.
The printed piece is designed to conserve up to 83% of vertical energy from the wearer, offering better performance and durability compared to foam midsoles. The midsole takes inspiration from Porsche by modeling after the automobile manufacturer’s logo and is created with a high-end elastic material.
It is the latest collaboration to come from both brands, following Puma’s partnerships with June Ambrose and Palomo Spain, and Porsche’s multiyear partnership with FaZe Clan and eyewear collection with Patrick Dempsey.
The sneaker is available at Porsche Design stores, its website, and Puma’s website, and can be yours for the sum of $430 USD.
